Let us pray with you, and for you

Come to the front of the sanctuary directly following the service so we can listen to your needs, and pray with you and for you; or even just to talk.
Missions and Ministry Projects
As a member of the Baptist Convention of
Ontario and Quebec, Avenue Road Baptist Church supports, through its church
budget and with special offerings, the work and mission of the Convention and of
Canadian Baptist Ministries in Canada and around the world. Support for Relief
and Development needs is given through the Sharing Way of CBM which works with
partner churches in many countries and through the World Aid program of the
Baptist World Alliance.
In addition, regular support is given to the Guelph Association of Baptist Churches, to Camp Hermosa, to Matthew House Refugee Ministry in Toronto, to Oasis Dufferin Community Centre and Food Bank in Toronto, to Friendship House in Brantford, to Bethlehem Aboriginal Fellowship in Winnipeg, and to local community projects like the Christmas Basket Fund, the Salvation Army Mitten Tree, Trinity Community Table (meals for the needy), and other projects.
Our prayer partners include such Canadian missionaries as Rev. Joyce Hancock with rehabilitation of street kids in Brasilia, Brazil; Dietrich and Edith Desmarais at Bethlehem Aboriginal Fellowship in Winnipeg; Phyllis Ortiz and Erika Abele of Oasis Dufferin, Toronto, and Anne Woolgar of Matthew House, Toronto.
The Church is kept up to date on the work of our partners through "Mosaic" a publication of Canadian Baptist Ministries, "the Link and Visitor" from the Baptist Women in Ontario and Quebec, "The Canadian Baptist" from the Baptist Convention of Ontario and Quebec, the weekly CBM Prayer Line via internet with requests printed in the Sunday Church Bulletin, the monthly newsletters of Oasis and Matthew House, and through letters and email notes from the partners themselves.
Showing the World Jesus' Love.
Service to others is one of our primary and practical ways of showing God's love to our neighbours: those across the street, and across the world. Here's a sampling of some of the work we share in at Avenue Road. Excited? Come on board, and make a difference with us!
Helping stay warm; Thursdays between 12:00 and 2:00 p.m.
Are you in need of gently used clothing for you and/or your family?
The “Community Clothesline” is a new and exciting ministry to the Cambridge community run by Avenue Road Baptist Church. This service is FREE for any Cambridge resident in need of practical assistance. Items include children’s, women’s and men’s clothing and shoes.
The "Community Clothesline" uses a “drop-in” style approach where people can come by anytime that suits them during our 'open' hours. The Community Clothesline is open Thursdays 12:00-2:00pm
If you have any interest in serving in this ministry, either on the front lines or behind the scenes, please speak to Holly Heise.
Have something to donate? Donations of gently used clothing can be dropped off to 465 Avenue Rd. Monday-Friday 9:00am-12:00pm.
For more information call: (519) 621-4391.
Please Note: We are currently accepting spring/summer donations. Personal items (i.e. underwear) will not be accepted.

The Bridges Shelter
Serving our neighbours in downtown Cambridge.
Volunteers from Avenue Road serve down at the Bridges Shelter in downtown Cambridge the third Sunday of every month on a rotating basis. Service includes helping prepare, serve and clean up for those having dinner at the shelter. Come join us as we have a little fun in the kitchen, and wait on others with a smile!
